Iris

www.retratobyronaldo.com

 

I was attending my daughter's school variety show when I saw this yellow and purple iris in solitude behind a group of blue ones.

 

This is Loreley (or Lorelei) Iris.

(German equivalent of the sirens that lured Ulysses and his men in the Odyssey. The Loreley would perch on the cliffs of the Rhine river and sing sailors to their doom.)
